An entity with ties to a local medical developer is the new owner of a former gas station in Ocoee.

Orlando-based Jamison Commercial Partners‘ related Ocoee Medical Development on Nov. 1 bought a roughly 1,500-square-foot fuel station at 11001 W. Colonial Drive for $1.65 million from Brandon-based Starfish Properties LLC, Orange County records showed. The 0.61-acre site includes a 936-square-foot convenience store and 576-square-foot car wash, county records showed.

Future plans for the site include demolishing the gas station and building in its place a 7,232-square-foot, single-story medical office building for Altamonte Springs-based nonprofit health system AdventHealth, per city of Ocoee permits. City staff is waiting for the developer to revamp and submit updated plans based on recommendations from the development review committee, said an October meeting agenda.

The submarket is sought after for medical office space because of its proximity to AdventHealth’s existing medical facilities in Winter Garden and Apopka, as well as Orlando Health’s hospitals in Ocoee and west Orange County’s Horizon West neighborhood. It is also about 1.5 miles away from Orlando Health Health Central Hospital.

OHC Advisors has proposed an assisted living facility in south Miami-Dade County, near Pinecrest and Kendall.

The Miami-based company, through affiliate 11405 SW 82 Ave LLC, filed a pre-application and zoning hearing with county officials for the 3.82-acre site at 11405 S.W. 82nd Ave. and 7990 S.W. 112nd St./Killian Drive. It purchased the vacant property for $3.5 million in July.

It wants to rezone the residential site to allow 154 assisted living beds. Michael Baldwin, the president of OHC Advisors, said there would be about seven two-story buildings. This would be a luxury, residential-style assisted living facility, not a “large boxy building” with all the residents housed together.

It will be called Killian Gardens.

3702 Washington Street

Forte Capital Management bought a Hollywood medical office building adjacent to Memorial Regional Hospital South for $11 million.

The Miami Beach-based company purchased the property at 3702 Washington Street, according to Chaim Cahane, president of Forte.

A group of five doctors, including at least three with offices at the property, sold the building through an affiliate, records show. That entity bought the building in 2004 for $4.4 million.

The 43,606-square-foot building, constructed in 1995, spans nearly half an acre, according to property records.

The four-story building is 92 percent leased, said Cahane, who worked with Forte’s Dov Tepper to close the off-market deal.

The real estate investment firm plans roughly $250,000 in improvements to the vacant spaces, common areas and building exterior, allowing rent increases. Rents now are 40 percent below market rate, Cahane said.

The medical office market has proved buoyant amid the pandemic. Florida continues to be a magnet for retirees, many of whom require medical care. The Hollywood medical office building connects through a pedestrian overpass to the hospital.
